The shoulder is an important part of the body – it is the most mobile joint, and facilitates a range of different movements that are useful for many everyday activities.
When you have an injured shoulder, you probably won’t be surprised that you certainly know about it! Whether it is stiffness, a feeling of sliding or popping, or a lack of strength, a shoulder problem is certainly a nuisance – and especially if your shoulder got injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault.
If that is the case, you could claim shoulder compensation through a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor!
What sort of accidents cause problems with your shoulder?
This is not an exhaustive list, by any means, but here are some ways your shoulder can get injured:
- A road accident – e.g. a car crash or motorbike crash. If the other driver is at fault, their insurer will pay out.
- Carrying something heavy – and this often happens in workplaces, meaning that your employer is liable.
- Slips, trips and falls – depending on how and where such an accident happens, your employer or the local authority could be liable to pay compensation.
Why should you claim for shoulder compensation?
When you have a shoulder injury, it can be debilitating. There is a lot of pain, reduced mobility, and a general inability to do the things you normally would. Often, this includes going to work – you may have to be signed off sick for some time when you have a shoulder injury. This, of course, means your income could be affected.
Additionally, you may need to pay for childcare or a home help, not to mention the frequent taxis you book for hospital appointments because driving is too painful.
